Update: I decided to check the latest git master commit to see if the
docs had changed. I found some
​thing about controlling ​the keyboard
layout, and I found more examples in the guix-help archives. This is
​the 'services' ​field that I ended up using:

(services (cons* (console-keymap-service "dvorak")
                 (modify-services %desktop-services
    (slim-service-type config =>
​ ​
(inherit config)
​ ​
startx (xorg-start-command
​ ​
​ ​
​ ​
'("Section \"InputClass\"
        Identifier \"keyboard-all\"
        Option \"XkbLayout\" \"dvorak\"
        MatchIsKeyboard \"on\"

​This successfully fixed the problem in the ​login manager. (GNOME, of
course, had to be configured separately.)
